TED Style Talks
Menachem Perry was born in Germany in December 1946.
From 1971 to 1974 he worked as a technician at "Kol Israel", the country's public domestic and international radio service while studying law at the Hebrew University.
In 1974 he trained as a radio broadcaster, a position he holds to this very day, even after his official retirement in 2013. During the 70's, 80's and 90's Perry was also a TV presenter for Channel 1, Israel's State operated television station.
During most of his years at "Kol Israel" he managed their courses for new broadcasters and acted as a facilitator. From 2005 to 2009 Perry also managed the broadcaster's department.
Throughout his entire career he has been compering various types of events, from official state ceremonies and memorial days to dancing competitions and sing-along evenings. At his home-studio he does voice recordings for the business industry.
For Menachem broadcasting has always been a true passion allowing him to express his love for the Hebrew language and connect with his listeners.
